COLOMBO, Apr 22: Some Sri Lankan security officials knew that a possible terror attack was brewing at least 10 days before a series of coordinated bombings killed hundreds in the country's churches and hotels Easter Sunday - but the prime minister was never informed, and it's unclear whether any extra precautions were taken.
"Some officials were aware of this incidence," tweeted Minister Harin Fernando.
Even the country's prime minister said in a press conference that he wasn't looped in on the grim forecast, reportedly saying in a press conference that the lapse needed to be addressed but that the immediate focus remains on ensuring all those responsible are in    custody.    -AFP
